Jose Mourinho ‘forgives’ Chelsea coach who taunted him and Manchester United dugout

Jose Mourinho clenches his fist in celebration

But with only seconds remaining, Mourinho's relaxed smiles gave way to snarls when the hosts snatched a last-gasp equaliser and he leapt off his seat to confront a Chelsea coach who appeared to antagonise him, leading to an ugly melee.

"For me, it is another game", said Mourinho. The players then replicated the scuffle with a heated debate in the centre circle before the match restarted for the final 20 seconds or so.

The Portuguese won three Premier League titles in two successful spells in charge of Chelsea, but has lost all three of his previous visits to Stamford Bridge as United manager without even scoring a goal.

"What happened with Sarri's assistant, Sarri was the first one to come to me and say he will resolve it".

The United coach has been warned over his part in the incident by UEFA, who have also fined the club a total of 15,000 euros (£13,200) for the late arrival of the team bus and the late kick-off on October 2.

'The assistant has already come to me and apologised, I told him to forget it. Mentally he got stronger and the happiness of this season - playing regularly, feeling that the [left-back] place was his and I think also the national team feeling was an accumulation of factors.

"But if someone has to be the man, I would prefer it to be myself than my players". He went for holidays with a club fitness coach and he arrived on day one in much better condition than a player that has a holiday just for fun and rest.

Forensic teams look for evidence after Khashoggi disappearance
Three other suspects are linked to Prince Mohammed's security detail and a fifth is a high-level forensic doctor, the Times said. The Turkish government has said it possesses audio and video proof Khashoggi was murdered shortly after entering the consulate.

"I would love to have him in Manchester United but I don't think Chelsea will sell him to Manchester United so it's a non-problem because Chelsea are led by intelligent and experienced people in football and I think they would never sell Eden to Manchester United", the United boss said.

"We were on the wrong side of this and this is why we apologise", stated Sarri.

"After the match I spoke with Jose and immediately I understood we were wrong", Sarri said.

Pogba spoke to Sky Sports as he previewed United's trip to London. "We always tried to play, there was no time-wasting".

Mourinho believes United could be facing the champions in waiting at Stamford Bridge this lunchtime if Eden Hazard can maintain his blistering form.

"I have a certain level of education socially and in sport and what I did today, I would do in Porto, Madrid, Milan". "On the evidence of this season they have been by far the better team". Two weeks ago Mourinho had no alternative other than to throw his players forward and they responded by saving his job, could he spring a surprise at Stamford Bridge or will he revert to defensive type?
